Rachel Madcow and MSNBC are in serious hot water after illegally publishing President Trump’s 2005 federal tax return.
So starving was Madcow and her ultra-liberal network for any story that would prove unfavorable to President Trump that they went with the piece anyway. To hell with laws! They are liberal Democrats. They don’t need no stinking laws.
The ploy backfired anyway. All Madcow proved to the world (illegally) was that Donald Trump indeed made a truckload of money ($150 million) in 2005 and paid a truckload of taxes to the federal government that year ($38 million).
A White House statement declared, “You know you are desperate for ratings when you are willing to violate the law to push a story about two pages of tax returns from over a decade ago.
Do you think Cubans are fighting for healthcare or freedom from Communism?
Despite this substantial income figure and tax paid, it is totally illegal to steal and publish tax returns. The dishonest media can continue to make this part of their agenda, while the President will focus on his, which includes tax reform that will benefit all Americans.”
President Trump and his “private” legal team (not his White House legal staff) are considering a lawsuit against MSNBC and reporter David Johnston for illegally publishing his tax return, which would be an easy, open-and-shut case, in my opinion.
By all means, Mr. President, nail these parasites to the wall and do not be gentle. If you allow them to get away with this, you will embolden the criminals even further and it will be worse next time. While you are at it, revoke MSNBC’s license for criminal activity. The only professional question Madcow should be asking is “Do you want fries with that?”
MSNBC must ask themselves if it was worth it. As for Rachel Madcow, the only professional question she should be asking in the future is “Do you want fries with that?”
